After competitive skiing on an international level, I followed my passion to become a ski instructor of the highest Swiss and international level during my studies in physical education and movement sciences. Later I turned to coaching athletes and education young ski instructors. Since 20 years I work as a freelance Snow sport teacher, Ski expert, Sports teacher, Movement scientist and Sport Psychology Expert. I enjoy helping people improve their skills and move better and healthier, while having fun doing so.

  • Excellent with all abilities
  • Great with beginners
  • Fun children’s lessons
  • Patient with improvers
  • Superb for intermediates
What to expect in a lesson

I can help you substantially improve your technique in snowboarding and alpine or cross-country skiing, both on the slopes and in deep snow. I am fluent in English, German, French and Dutch.
Children can start taking lessons from as young as two years if circumstances are optimal; most, however, begin snow sporting between four and six years. Adults can start at any age. With carefully tailored instructions I can lead most adults to ski securely and autonomously within two to three days to enjoy the ski slopes.
If you have not skied in a while, if you have an injury or a recent operation, or if you simply feel insecure or afraid on the slopes, I will guide you in small steps to optimize your technique so that you can enjoy snow sports in confidence.

I look forward to working with you.

Rolf Jakob, MSc

I want to thank Rolf for making my family first ski experience such a magical one! He had the patience of a great teacher since we were all new to ski but not only that he was flexible and adaptable to our fears, our individual interests and he showcase that by speaking in English to my husband and me and in french to my kids. He was awesome and not just a ski instructor he also teaches with his coaching knowledge so you gain confidence really fast! Thanks Rolf for sure we will meet again!

Rolf was a great instructor, he helped me to polish my technique, explaining different exercises in an easy manner, correcting my mistakes. Highly recommended for those intermediate-advance skiers whom want to reach next level. Would 100% book again if come back to Engelberg.

The lessons with Rolf were great. He was able to respond well to our needs and taught us a lot in few hours. Despite some adverse circumstances he made the best of it, was familiar with the place and we felt very comfortable with him. We plan to use Rolf's expertise again next time to improve our skills. Great, thank you very much for your flexibility Rolf!

Super lessons!!! I have booked Lessons with Rolf several times now and every time we learned new things and made great progress. Very professional- finally real solid lessons tailored to each of our levels. Our kids got a different approach from us but we did not pay extra for bringing the whole family. Great value for money. Thank you, Rolf! Love Pat

You can arrange the meeting point with your chosen instructor by using the Maison Sport messaging system. We recommend agreeing this before you book your lessons, but it can always be arranged at a later date. The instructor should be able to suggest somewhere that is convenient for you both.

What qualifications do the instructors have?

All instructors listed on Maison Sport have been verified by their nation's governing body, be it the French Government's Department of Sport, Swiss Ski Federation or The Italian Winter Sports Federation, so you can rest assured you will be in safe hands when you’re on the slopes.

How many people can take part in the lesson?

Generally no more than 8 people, each instructor has their own policy for this, so it is best to just double check with them by sending a message. Most instructors won't charge extra if there is more than 1 person taking part in the lesson, but always best to check with them before booking.s
